Becke Singleton is a wife and mother who enjoys drawing, painting, messy projects, traveling, hiking, listening to music, spending time with family, working/playing on the computer, drinking coffee and talking with friends.
"When I was a student, the art room was a place where I could escape. Now that I'm older, art is a way to express myself and experience the world beyond words." Mrs. Singleton is a tactile learner who enjoys creating individual and group projects. She does not teach a specific style of art; rather her focus is on the creative process which leads students to their own unique, artistic voice. She encourages students to brainstorm, sketch, research, create, edit, and reflect. "It is important for students to be taken outside of their comfort zone, to challenge, and to inspire."
